A local walks down a newly-constructed earthzyme® road in Sobe, Edo State, Nigeria
Economic Development in Nigeria Starts From the Ground Up
Our Construction Foreman Jayme Gladden just finished up an EarthZyme® application on a farm road in Sobe, Edo State, Nigeria. Through a partnership with our Nigerian distributor, Fanaxel Nigeria Ltd, the road construction was executed by partnering company, TransAfrika Roads Technologies. The initial road was little more than a trail with only 2 wheel paths, which was very uneven and completely un-drivable at times. After construction and EarthZyme® application, the road was widened to 7.3 meters to allow higher volumes of traffic. The new road was built to give the local farmers better access to their fields and to help them transport their crops to neighbouring towns for faster shipping while the crops were still ripe, giving them better returns on their yields.
“EarthZyme® and Dust Stop® make long-lasting unpaved rural and farm road construction a reality. With limited state budgets, EarthZyme® and Dust Stop® are a clear choice for these applications.”Kelechi Agada, Owner & President, Fanaxel Nigeria Ltd / TransAfrika Road Technologies
The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said his administration would take advantage of opportunities in the agricultural sector and provide requisite support to communities that are ready to open up their land for agricultural investment. According to Obaseki, the state is driving economic growth by encouraging investments in agriculture and allied industries so that Edo will not only become self-sufficient in food production but also diversify its revenue base.

“While in Nigeria, I had the opportunity to attend an ‘Investments in Nigeria’ Gala, where I was able to meet various heads-of-state, as well as the Governor of Edo State. The following night, I was invited to dinner at the Governor’s house where I was able to sit down with him and discuss the state of infrastructure in Nigeria and the role that Cypher can play fixing all the roads in the country.”Jayme Gladden, Construction Foreman, Cypher Environmental
